Burnside Park Health Fair

On November 5, 2016 the RIMNP collaborated with community partners to host a 1st annual community health fair in Burnside Park. With partners like the Ocean State Immunization Collaborative, Project Weber/RENEW, Clinica Esperanza and Fostering Hope we were able to provide a range of services including flu vaccines, STI/Hep C/HIV testing, blood pressure and glucose monitoring.We also loved seeing the DPH and Healthy Communities Office. It was a very well attended event with about 100 visitors! We hope that people were able to address some of their basic health needs and gain access to follow up care. Here’s to bringing health care to the people!
